TRANSMISSION: KINGDOM OF is an invitation to delve into alternative kingdoms that while fantastical, seem uncannily real. An expansive universe of worlds, territories and thrones, the show explores the tensions inherent in this delicate cycle of life; to reveal strength in fragility, growth in decay and order in chaos. From a cocoon of hidden mysteries, an oversized roving ball, intricately woven life-sized sculptures, to built structures containing surprising environments while nature itself spills in, viewers are in for a sensory experience with this collection of intimate and innovative installations that inhabit the exhibition space.
TRANSMISSION: KINGDOM OF will also present a collaborative artwork that uniquely strings six stories translated onto fixed portraits of size 70cm x 100cm. Inspired by selected texts from various parts of the world, the final work is an intriguing combination of text, painting, photography, 3D sculpturing and mechanical wiring.
